Workind Reserve 



u Permit me to express my great appreciation of 



ork undertaken by the Penn- 



sylvania Division of the United States Boys' Working Reserve of the Employment Service 
of the Department of Labor. To give to the young men of Pennsylvania between the 
ages of sixteen and twenty-one the privilege of spending their spare time in productive 
enterprise without interrupting their studies at school, while their older brothers are 
battling in the trenches and on the seas, must greatly increase the means of providing for 
the forces at the front and the maintenance of those whose services are needed here. It is 
a high privilege, no less than a patriotic duty, to help support the nation by devoted and 
intelligent work in this great crisis . 

* 

" Let me express the hope that the young men of Pennsylvania not now permanently 
employed may eagerly enter the Boys' Working Reserve to fit themselves by training and 
study for good citizenship and productive service. In this way they can show themselves 
worthy of patriotic fathers who have fought for democracy in the past, sustain their pa- 
triotic brothers who are fighting for it to-day, and command the affectionate pride of the 




brave mothers who are silently bearing the burdens at home.
